Halloween 2010

Halloween started off a little rocky. Friday I began having a sore throat, but didn’t think much about it. Then Friday night I started feeling terrible. No fever, but my throat was killing me! Saturday morning I went to the doctor and tested positive for strep! I haven’t had strep since I was a kid. I was really surprised and so mad! The nurse gave me a shot of penicillin and said I would be contagious until Monday. By early afternoon I was feeling really good and really wanted to take Andrew trick-or-treating. I decided I would just stay far away from everyone and let Nick handle everything. It ended up being fine, but I still feel like I missed out!

Before we left Andrew was so excited about going outside and he DID NOT want to stop for a picture!DSC02308(rev 1)

We started with Nick’s parents:

Watcha Wearing Wednesday

I am having trouble getting a good picture. It is still dark outside when I take it and the reflection off the mirror is hard to deal with. Sorry!

Taking a picture of yourself everyday definitely helps with not letting yourself gain any extra pounds!

Also in other news Andrew has officially graduated to a FULL size bed and sleeping alone!! The transition was much easier than I expected. He just took to it completely. I started the first several nights by laying down with him until he fell asleep. He sleep all night with no problems. Tonight I laid him down without staying with him and he fussed a little, but went right to sleep. My big boy!! I have been a little sad because I loved having him so close, but our bed is only a queen and he is getting bigger by the day. Now Nick and I can enjoy a more comfortable sleep!

Don’t judge,but we also got him a little TV. It only has an antenna (which only picks up 3 channels), but we thought it would be fine for when he gets a little older. He has even started wanting on his bed to watch TV. He will get the remote and say “watch.” Luckily one of the three channels is GPBS Kids and plays kids shows all day. Anyway I included some picks the bed. We are still looking for a comforter.

I stayed home with Andrew today because he was still running a fever this morning, but it went away quickly. He is still very whiny and ill, but feeling better. He is napping now, so maybe the sleep will help. Thanks for everyone’s prayers on here and facebook!

I even put him to work today! He loves push ANYTHING around. BTW, I don’t normally clean the hardwood floors with this cleaner. It is very streaky, but I was desperate and out of the normal stuff I use.

I am going to enjoy a few peaceful hours!

Sickness and Raising the Roof!

Unfortunately I had to leave work early today to pick Andrew because he was running a fever. He has been running one on and off all day. He is sleeping right now, so we will see how the night goes. He doesn’t have any other symptoms.

He was feeling well enough to play outside for a little while, so I took some picture of the addition. It is really coming along!
